Little Mix are one of my favourite artists around right now. I’m in love with their music, their vocals and their stage presence. Their shows are always incredible so I was extremely excited to go to the Get Weird tour in Cardiff and I was definitely not disappointed.
The show began with the girls being flung into the air before going into Grown and the quality of the performance throughout the whole show just continued. I can honestly say that it is one of the best productions I’ve ever seen. The staging and the visuals were incredible, with the hilarious screens during the costume changes which told the story of the show (they could definitely pull off a Little Mix Spice-World-style movie) and the breathtaking quality of the stage props, including huge trees for the creepy forest themed section including Lightning and DNA.
I am never failed to be amazed by the vocals of those four girls. During Secret Love Song, Little Me and The End especially, they really do show why they deserved to win X Factor, and they have only improved in the years since. Perrie’s powerful voice blows me away every time, but I love that each girl gets their chance to shine and show off their talent and demonstrate that they all can sing, and very well indeed. I do wish they had included Love Me Or Leave Me though, as it’s one of my favourites on the album and is such a beautiful song that would have showcased their vocals incredibly also.
The girls included a medley of Apache/Fester Skank/Justin Bieber’s Where Are You Now/Beyonce’s Crazy In Love, and even threw some Hotline Bling into the middle of How Ya Doin’. My personal highlights were Lightning (that dance breakdown though!!), Secret Love Song and Black Magic which was the same version as their Brits performance and closed the show as they literally disappeared in a puff of smoke.
I was wondering how Little Mix would beat their Salute tour but they’ve definitely managed it and have put together an incredible show. They are still continuing the tour in the UK right now, before heading to Australia, Asia and Europe. If you’ve managed to get your hands on tickets then you’re definitely in for a treat.
